I got the job – the one that pays good money!
I’m so very excited of course and look forward to not starting until the 11th — with the exception of a days training on the 7th. And my apologies, I started writing this last Wednesday when I got the good news – I just got busy…
…and got down to the business of my Personal Training. Yes, it’s official.
This photo below was taken at 6:30 a.m. of the sun rising, of course in the east of me. Heading west, of course, I saw the reflection of this gorgeous sunrise in my side view mirror and I just HAD to stop and take a photo. I The sunrise is gorgeous enough but it was the ‘accidental’ reflection against the car that made it the money shot.
Even though I didn’t ‘officially’ start training until this past Saturday, “A” had me start; well now that I think of it, I started training on the day the credit card was swiped, but we didn’t do a ‘session’ until Saturday. Anyway, he ‘went over things’ and we got my BodyBugg adjusted. He told me to do cardio every night until I meet with him.
And so I met with him on Saturday and we did a pretty darn hard workout!!
At any rate, below is one of my daily report cards… I’m loving seeing the sleep data! Until A and I get together and go over compiled data for the week, I’m just a little bit in the dark with what these numbers mean — other than that the right hand column is full of positive information.
What’s weird, and likely true: I don’t feel like or seems like I have walked that many steps. But there is an embedded graph which proves it.
That said, this is a clip of the full range of the day and circled first is the cardio with training. Cardio is the first tall ‘mass’ and the shorter and intermittent peaks and valleys is the training. And, in the next series of spikes is me at iTan, Old Navy, then Trader Joe’s and finally Costco. Then I’m home doing not much, and then a rise in the middle and I think this is where I was trying on clothes to see what I’d wear to the party, then shower and hair. Then, a nap and then around 2:45 you seem me actually “getting ready” to go… and so on.
Anyways, lots of things too look at in this program and it really is — something — and mind you — I have the poor people Bodybugg.
So, so far so good!
But it has been a crazy busy week — the kind of crazy busy with transitions… like doing one errand or class only to have to drive around come home to change clothing, maybe in some instances remove things from the car for a friend visiting (and I had to drive to lunch) then changing for a workout, putting things back in the car, then a date for this and time for that and …. it has been non-stop like this for the entire week.
And “Scarlett” knows she’s a princess and that maybe this is a day in the life for most. But this chick is exhausted and today (Sunday) is the only day I didn’t have to go do something; with the exception of the morning BodyPump class and 40-minutes of cardio.
Here is a sneak preview of my class getting started!
For the first time ever, I really struggled in this class. I think I was just run down completely with the crazy week winding down and the daily trips to the gym for cardio, and cardio and more cardio and cardio. Also, in training yesterday, it was a full body workout with emphasis on core and upper body. Today I seemed weak. But, A said to do the workout — it’s good for me to keep my form.
Wrapping it up…
…Cuz girl needs her beauty sleep and tomorrow is the first of 7-days in a row without a morning, afternoon, or evening appointment. WOO-HOO. Still, I will have to look forward to 1-hour of cardio at some point in the day — but otherwise, free as a bird!
This photo was taken of me last night. I cropped just me out of a huge photo because I wanted to post this one. This is me working very hard to completely hide myself behind my hands and crossed legs. The idea of posting this here is to use it as a before photo and fine statement of everything wrong about my being fat — hiding, being mortified and … pissed off. The next times that people insist on shooting pics of me – each next time will show an improvement and I will post it!
OK… off to bed!
